We had an amazing tour with Martin from Troll Expeditions and can't recommend this experience enough when visiting southeast Iceland. The entire tour lasted around 4 hours and we did the 2pm slot which was perfect for us. Our group was only around 8 people which meant we had lots of time to take pictures and explore the ice cave when we arrived. Martin gave us all the time we needed and the tips and tricks to get the best photos which we really appreciated. He was the perfect guide, a great personality and very charismatic but always making sure everyone was safe and doing what they should be under the icy conditions. Walking between was glacier was surreal and like nothing we have ever experienced, the textures of the ice makes it look like you're entering a frozen beehive. You may spot the few Ravens flying around which was really cool to see up close. If you are passing by Skaftafell during your trip you have to stop here and do this tour, the value for money is outstanding!
My family and I agree that this was best vacation (tour) we’ve ever taken. Our guide, Rocky was fantastic. Everyone on the tour was captivated by his knowledge of the island. We very much enjoyed his tales; myths and truths! The minivan experience was very comfortable. Rocky’s playlist was on-point and thoughtfully arranged. The activities and guides were spectacular. On this tour we participated in glacier hiking, cave touring, horseback riding and whale watching. The stops along the trip were breathtaking; we saw beautiful waterfalls, caves, geysers, black sand beaches, glaciers, lakes and even reindeer! My family and I plan on returning to Iceland again and I will recommend Troll Expeditions to everyone I know!
It was one of the most mesmerizing experience of my life: an intense contact with a pure and dominant nature. Our guide was excellent and extremely competent. I would recommend it to everyone!
It was fantastic, but the walk from the parking lot could be shorter, and the road condition could be improved
Our guide was hilarious! And we had all the time in the world to get the best pictures!
